- Cycle ride
This 20 km circuit, suitable for all types of bikes, is perfect for a family hike in the heart of Roman Païs, in the province of Walloon Brabant.
Visits, places and accommodation labelled Welcome Bike to discover in the vicinity.
Here is a RAVeL cycle trail ideally located, a hundred meters from the Grand'Place of Nivelles, dominated by the superb collegiate! It doesn't take long to leave the city of Nivelles and get into the country.
In a few pedals, we reach a completely different setting- one of fields and groves; with the country surroundings, but the city of Brabant city is also resolutely green. In 7 km, we reach Arquennes.
At the exit of the village, we follow the old channel of Charleroi-Brussels which has its charm! A waterway that was built in the early nineteenth century while both cities were in full demographic and industrial development.
The work was titanic since it was necessary to build more than 50 locks between the two cities. Today, the towpath that saw the horses pull the barges, has become this RAVeL cycling trail which we can follow peacefully to reach Seneffe.
The return is made by following the old line 141 which crosses the surrounding woods.
